A person or a company that puts a lien on a vehicle is a "lien holder" that is on the title. It is not recognized as ownership.

If someone has a car title that belongs to a person that someone paid for from a title loan place and the person didn't put his name on the lien spot so does the car still belong to him or you or who?

The car belongs to the person listed as the owner on the title. Listing someone as the lien holder does not make them the owner.You can't transfer a motor vehicle when you know there's a lien on it.

Can you put a lien on a car if you have the title?

That would be counterproductive if the title you hold is in your name. If you are holding the title for someone else, a lien would only make a difference when they sell the car--and it has to meet certain criteria.AnswerNo. You cannot place a lien on your own property legally since there is no separation of title. A lien gives the lien holder a legal interest in the property of another. If you are holding property in your name for someone else, the title is in your name and you cannot place a lien against it.

Can you put a lien on a car if there is no lienholder on the title?

If the car is put up as collateral for a loan, and that loan is not repaid according to the written agreement then a lien will be placed on the title. If you sell the vehicle the lien holder will be paid first before you are able to put any money into your pocket. Never use your car as collateral for any loans ... cars lose their values and soon enough the lien (loan) will be more than the car is worth. The lien still has to be paid off when it's sold, even if the lien amount exceeds the price the car is sold for.
